Come and join Hunakai Studio of Fine Arts for our next exciting upcoming event! From 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Nov. 22, we will be hosting a print making workshop. This workshop will focus on collotype printing and an exploration of monotype printing. The cost of this class is $50, and we do break for lunch for half an hour.
If you are unfamiliar with collotype printing, think about what old postcards used to look like. Many old postcards were collotypes, as were many business cards and invitations. With the advancements in printing technology, collotype is not really used commercially any longer. It was invented in 1856 by Alphonse Poitevin as a solution for large volume printing. Once lithography was created, though, this technique was phased out. In the class you will learn more about the process to make your own prints at home.
Monoprinting is much different than collotype printing. As the name implies, monoprinting is a form of printmaking that can only be made once. A monoprint is a single impression of an image made from a reprintable block. With this technique, each and every print is different because of the amount of pressure that is applied to the plate, colors used or by simply altering the type.
Learn more about both of these great printing methods at our upcoming class Nov. 22. To register for this – or any of our other upcoming workshops – email [email protected] and mention. For more information on this or details about our sessions, contact us today.
